“The Light: Our Great Power from God”
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the Light of the world. If you follow Me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the Light that leads to life.” John 8:12
Jesus claimed to be the LIGHT of the World, and stated that if the people would FOLLOW Him, meaning, to BELIEVE and OBEY Him, they would NOT have to WALK or LIVE in DARKNESS, which is a symbol of SIN, WICKEDNESS, and IGNORANCE, because they would have the LIGHT that LEADS to LIFE.
In 2 Corinthians 4:7, the Apostle Paul tells us that when we come to Jesus for the SALVATION of our soul, we have this LIGHT shining in our HEART, and we are like a FRAGILE CLAY JAR, which contains this GREAT TREASURE, the LIGHT of the WORLD, Jesus Christ, who gives us LIFE ETERNAL, our SALVATION. And this GREAT POWER that we now have access to, is from the ALMIGHTY GOD, not from ANYTHING we ARE or Do. HE is our SOURCE of having the LIGHT of LIFE in a DARK world.
Even though, we are PRESSED on every side by TROUBLES, we are NOT CRUSHED, PREPLEXED, but NOT DRIVEN to DESPAIR, HUNTED, but NEVER ABANDONED by GOD, and we get KNOCKED DOWN, we are NOT DESTROYED, because we have the LIGHT of the WORLD, living inside of us, giving us that GREAT POWER we NEED to be a LIGHT to this DARK, DEPRAVED and DOOMED world. (VV 8,9)
And because we have this LIGHT of the WORLD living in us, by the POWER of His HOLY SPIRIT, we HAVE the HOPE of HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS, as our ETERNAL HOME. Do you have the LIGHT and His GREAT POWER?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are continuing to LIVE in DARKNESS, and your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there. The TIME to be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL, is NOW. To do that you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and STOP LIVING in the DARKNESS, but COME to the LIGHT of the WORLD, and FOLLOW HIM to an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
